Police arrested a Point Breeze woman for supposedly committing aggravated assault at a nearby business.
As first reported in the Feb. 18 South Philly Review as “Ducking at Dunkin,’” at 6:50 a.m. Feb. 12, officers ventured to Dunkin’ Donuts, 1551 Washington Ave., and met with the store manager. She reported a dissatisfied patron started knocking things down on the counter, picked up a ceramic cup, and heaved it at her. The throw caused the overseer to suffer a wrist laceration, with the offender fleeing the area in a dark vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus.
Police announced on Friday that they had detained Safaa Brown, of the 1500 block of Ellsworth Street, for the incident and charged the 22-year-old with criminal mischief, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and possession of an instrument of crime. She received a release on her own recognizance and awaits a May 20 trial.
